Ceramics Greenware?

Answer

The term ceramics greenware is a type of pottery that has completely dried in a mold until it has become leather hard. It is dried and completely in what is done as its green state. This also is known as its uncured state. The item has the appearance of being strong, yet, in reality it is fragile. It can be easily broken or shattered, especially if it is mishandled. The reason it is so fragile is that it has lost all of it water through the act of evaporation. It also has no flexibility at this point. Greenware ceramics are ceramics that are considered passive because they are awaiting to be fired. They are normally placed on a rack or shelf during this waiting period.
